1. What Kind of Slipcover do You Want?
Custom slipcovers are great if your furniture has non-linear shapes, or if you want a fitted look. The measurements are done by a professional, who also orders the fabric. This saves you time and hassle, but it can be on the pricey side. Ready-made slipcovers are a good idea if you want a low-cost option. They protect your couch from dirt and spills and come in standard sizes. You can adjust the size with ties or straps.
2. Pick a Material
Pick a fabric that is durable and can be washed in your washing machine. Look for a sturdy and smooth weave rather than snag-prone materials like silk. Cotton and cotton-polyester blends are a good choice and they wash well. Polyester microfibres and some faux suedes are great if you want a fabric in which spills can be wiped right off.
3. Create a Budget
Custom slipcovers can be pricey, and ready-made slipcovers are extremely affordable. Prices will vary, and a custom slipcover can cost at least $600, and a ready-made slipcover can cost as little as $50. Pick a price range that woks for you.
